Year 12: You’ll be getting to grips with the demands of A Level study and diving into the decadent era of Jazz and Flappers as we study F.Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel: ‘The Great Gatsby’.

Year 13: Be prepared to enter the dark world of Jacobean Revenge Tragedy, full of blood, gore, incest and murder. Just like Game of Thrones but without the dragons! Welcome to Webster’s ‘The Duchess of Malfi’.
